I must admit, from the outside I wasn't expecting much. After seeing so many beautiful churches in Spain already, it's hard to get really excited about them. However, this one was a real surprise. The guide opened the outside door to the church and voila! there is 2nd set of doors (the portico) - an elaborate masterpiece carved and painted... More

You can only go inside the church if you are with a guide. It was hard to understand the guide as she did not speak English well & we could only follow along with the written info she gave us. The entrance before entering the church was quite spectacular!

It is quite a work of art and craftsmanship. I was so surprised by how beautiful the interior was for a church in such a small town. The high altar is... More

We had seen a lot of cathedrals that week, but the lady who led the tour was very entertaining and made the tour very enjoyable. It just so happened that she was also the person who gave us great information at the Laguardia TI! The town is thoroughly enjoyable and worth the time to explore.

Very comfortable town to walk thru. Nota at all congested and everything in walking distance. The church was interesting but, again after visiting a dozen churches that week...it was fine.

If you are in La Guardia, don't miss the cathedral! The only way to visit it is to wait for the scheduled group guided tours, but it's worth!

Wonderfully preserved piece of sculptured art. Must do the guided tour in order to fully comprehend the magnificent content you're seeing.
